This is one of the most annyoing and common bug for Google Chrome which the G- developers have assured that they will get rid of it asap but didn’t bother yet. I ran into this error message for the first time I installed Google Chrome browser in my Windows Vista. No wonder Vista is ‘loved’ by all!


There is an easy fix by adding an argument at the end of the Chrome target called the  –no-sandbox.

To fix the problem first you will need to find all of the shortcuts for the program including the one on your Quick Launch task bar. Right click on the shortcuts and go to properties.

Add the argument –no-sandbox at the end of the Target Path for Google Chrome shortcut. The argument should be spelled out like this:  hyphen,hyphen,no,hyphen sandbox without the commas.

After adding the argument in the Target Path line, click OK to save the changes.  Double click on the shortcut to execute the Google Chrome internet browser and it should work fine.

I had the same problem, but you have to use:

target plus –no-sandbox.

C:\Users\UDP\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –no-sandbox
